In honor of National Best Friends Day on June 8, kids share what it means to be a friend and get the chance to be among the first to experience Mia’s Riding Adventure at Heartlake City.

LEGOLAND® Florida Resort will open its newest land, Heartlake City, on June 26. The theme park’s newest expansion is based on the popular LEGO Friends product line and is closely modeled after the five LEGO Friends personalities: Olivia, Stephanie, Emma, Mia and Andrea, and their personal interests such as animals, music, nature and fashion.

In honor of their friendships, and in celebration of National Best Friends Day, park guests told Mia which characteristics make the perfect friend. Mia gave each of the first fifty participating kids two tickets to return to Heartlake City with their best friend when Heartlake City officially opens. Mia also personally invited the guests to be among the first to experience the new ride themed to her love of horses, Mia’s Riding Adventure.

Construction is almost complete on Heartlake City, which will be a colorful and vibrant experience offering adventures for all ages. Beyond the new ride, it will include a new interactive show called Friends to the Rescue as well as Stephanie’s News Room and retail stores inside Heartlake Mall.
